Does it say anywhere in the Oral Torah that women have to have long hair?

  • Kaballically in short: hair=Dinim, woman=Dinim, Dinim=Binah man=Chessed=Chochmah, etc. Therefore (traditionally): women [are expected to] shave everything from the ears downward while men shave from the ears upward and leave everything else. As King Solomon was shocked seeing the queen of Sheba not shaving her legs and said: "שער יפה לאנשים ודופי לנשים" (Targum on Ester). – Al Berko May 26 at 14:46
